the education, the administration, and all these other connections. so it is effectively no system. so if we talk tough -- to stir the pot of little bit -- encouraging growth or expansion with society's systems quotient, some techniques that we can do to shift the mental models away from the gadgets and sort of trance and to the idea that innovation is everywhere. innovation is pervasive in all our systems, within the not so sexy financial system, but not so sexy administrative system. they're better ways of doing things. .. it's usually a teacher and it's not some president or whatever. it's someone you may know personally so you can foster a closer relationship in your organization that will inherently create those innovative organizations that rely on people is the foundation >> i really like the iceberg analogy and i would go back to where he started in terms of what's important for young professionals looking. i think what lies below that surface -- i am not a tech die. i am impressed by really good design that solves a practical problem and i don't claim to know a lot in the
more affordable. we'll look at how the u.s. education system compares with others from around the world. from washington, this is inside story. [♪ music ] >> welcome, i'm libby casey. a comin college education in the united states costs more than anywhere else in the world. despite the high bill american colleges are slipping in the international rankings. on thursday president obama introduced a plan that he says will help make college for affordable. >> i'm proposing major new reforms that will shake up the current system, create better incentives for colleges to do more with less, and deliver better value for students and their families. >> so what would the president's plan mean for american students and their future? we put that question to a recent graduate. fiona who lives in washington, d.c. told us her story. >> i am 29 years old. i have an undergraduate degree in ecology, which is just a branch of biology and then a masters in environmental science and management, and between those two i have a total of $85,000 in student loan debt. >> what does that mean for monthly payment
. the major purpose for this foundation is trying to set up a program, a public education program, by using the health, lifestyle and more vegetables and fruit to reduce the cancer incidence and mortality. >> what are the major foot -- the major activities and functions of the foundation? you mentioned education. do you cut out courses or promotional videotapes for people to get a better understanding for ways to have a healthy diet and therefore a healthy lifestyle? >> the major thing for the education is teach the people that cancer is a preventable disease and that we focus on the family. so we educate the mother first. in the beginning, we are training 4000 mothers. and then we found the children play a major role in the family. we asked the mother to prepare more vegetables and fruit -- for the parents, especially the father -- and we asked for the mother, especiallyelementary sc. also, we are training the new dietitians in the school. and the training of the teacher and we set up all the teaching materials. so we have brochures and some activity training. so the dietitian plays a very
to be part of it, and am aware of the fact that there is a crisis in higher education. textbooks cost too much. it is a fact that tuition is too high, and that is a problem, not a crisis. is a serious problem, although not a crisis yet, that students graduate from college with way too much student debts. a problem, not a crisis. parking is in adequate on practically even campus. students gain 15 pounds the first months they attend college. that is a problem, not a crisis. crisis in american higher education in my opinion is that there is 22 million students in n colleges and universities, and 21.5 million of them attend colleges and universities so far the left that they cannot see the middle- of-the-road or the telescope. is that they are not just liberals, but many of these schools -- and i am talking about famous, importance, wealthy colleges and universities -- are subverting the values not only of america, but of western civilization. i do not say that on these or maybe 98%e 99% of american students attend that every single student fox's attitude, nor every faculty or staff member. i

[inaudible]. >> thank you. >> thank you. (applause) >>> hello, my name is marco low be and i'm a current ccsf student and i'm going to be a future college student there. ~ lopez if the community did not have the opportunity to attend city college and all of its programs, we would not have the means to change our choices in life. this freedom of choice to attend ccsf and the process of education is a tool to help many inspire and focus towards goals. excuse me. many of which seek focus from and is a means to inspire youth and adults of all cultural, religious, sexual backgrounds, and various
to get into the middle class out of a college education. >> do you agree with him on college affordability? >> i certainly agree that college costs way, way too much, christine. i have two kids in college, so it is killing me financially. but i think the solution is not to keep throwing more and more federal dollars at these universities, i think the universities are the biggest scam going in america. there is no reason a college education should cost 30, 40, $50,000 a year. and by the way, i think there is good news on this score. i think you're going to see more and more people moving toward on-line education, cutting these costs of colleges. it circles back to what you were just talking about, christine. if people's salaries and wages are falling, how in the world can they afford to send kids to school when it's taking up more than half of their income? >> the one thing is, $26,000 in student debt, you can afford to pay that back if there's a job on the other end. but if we are part-time america, that investment that we are encouraging kids to take just doesn't make any se

and phi delta kappa international released a poll on public education views yesterday. among the findings, parents are more concerned about their children's safety with other students as opposed to outsiders. most support making higher education more affordable. the poll also looked at the impact of common core state standards, which aims to align the actingicula. deputy secretary was present. this is just over 90 minutes. >> good afternoon and welcome to which way do we go, a discussion of the results of the 44th annual pdk poll on views on i am shanecation. lopez, your host for the afternoon. before we talk about the results of this year's poll, these indulgent me. i would like to tell you a little bit about the work we have done. i would like to tell you a little bit about the work we have been doing at gallup. in the last year alone, we have polled americans to discover who is happiest at work. that might seem like a fluffy concept, and this might surprise you even more, given that it is a fluffy concept. teachers are one of the happiest groups in america. i figured you would like tha
start. even deeper cuts in education and support, even deeper cuts in basic science and research. that is like eating your corn seed. it is like being penny wise and pound foolish. if young people are not succeeding, if we are not spending on research and maintain our technological edge, if we are not upgrading our roads and bridges and our transportation and infrastructure, all things we can afford to do right now and should be doing right now and would put people to work right things we don't do those in 20 years from now or 30 years from now we will have fallen behind. host: that is during course of president obama's college tour. the numbers are on the screen. on twitter -- you can make your thoughts on the phone line as well. as far as the political strategy is concerned, thecleveland.com says -- phone lines are available, -- they mentioned the strategy behind this. the wall street journal story picks up on that. eric cantor said -- caller: i got a call from the republican party asking me to contribute money. i told the woman to stop reading from the script and i asked her a
manageable to pay back. we should say some of the education community have started to speak out and expressed concerns this could be a difficult process to implement. but the white house pushes back against that. they say they are going to get the input of colleges and universities as they begin this process. and, of course, ultimate approval would depend on congress. so that's a big question mark. the rnc calling this a lame duck bus tour. it's not clear that president obama would be able to get sort of the bipartisan support for this type of proposal that he's hoping for. and craig, to put this in a broader context, this is really the president's goal to tee up the fall budget battles. the budget and also, of course, the debt ceiling which he'll be dealing with this fall. that's part of the larger goal. we expect the president to come out in a few minutes. craig? >> kristen welker traveling with the president in buffalo. we'll hear from president obama in just a few moments. meanwhile, i want to bring in steve cornaki. let's talk about -- not just the president's plan here, but the rising c
, the purpose of this hearing is really probably for me is to educate myself, other elected officials on how important city college is, to hear -- have a place where people can voice concerns about what's happening with city college as well as to hear what public officials are doing to protect city college. we have representatives from our state level of government and local level of government. i know that our assembly has taken steps and actions to support city college as well as the mayor's office has done so -- is doing so as well, as well involved with the trustee to make sure that city college is able to stay together and keep accreditation. just a couple weeks ago, while it wasn't a big splash, we did ask the question of the mayor at question time separate from our typical way, we ask questions of the mayor. it was more on the spot question to ask what the mayor is doing to support city college at our community -- who are reliant on city college. he poke at that. if we can get an update from the mayor's office as well what the mayor's office is doing. ~ spoke at that there have been q
to college education. not all the reforms that we're proposing are going to be popular. i mean there are some who are benefitting from the status quo. there will be some resistance. there's going to have to be a broad-based conversation, but part of our goal here is to stir a conversation because the current path that we're on is unsustainable. and it's my basic belief and i suspect the belief of most people here, higher education shouldn't be a luxury. it's an economic necessity in this knowledge-based economy. and we want to make sure that every family in america can afford it. so i'm interested. if you guys have other ideas -- [ applause ] if you have other ideas about things that we should be looking at, we want to hear them, and that's part of the purpose of this town hall discussion. i'm interested in hearing your stories, getting your questions, and this will be a pretty informal affair. well, as informal as it gets when the president comes and there are a bunch of cameras everywhere. so with that, i'd just like to start the discussion. and what i'm going to do is i'm just going to cal
lives improve. you know, a lot of folks go into our early childhood education classes. they come out, you know, we have a deficit of actual child care slots and you can't go to work if you don't have affordable child care. we help in terms of comping out more a supply of child care workers so they can lower the cost of child care. i have a 2-1/2 year old. it's another rent to pay for child care these days. but we try to resolve that. we actually try to resolve that by having more child care slots available. so, i think if you just look at it, yes, everybody knows city college is, you know, important, but these are the things that let us secure -- we wanted to prioritize classes. and maybe we could have made some better decisions. i think so, yes, but really our decisions were made so we can provide access to everybody. and then my last point before i leave is i know that there was a comment about the real estate department. i do really appreciate the mayor's office being involved with this process, but i do think that one service we might not need in terms of prioritization of re
in higher education. she founded a college. she was very active with their alma mater. >> the 1892 election was a rematch between benjamin harrison and grover cleveland. the first lady, mrs. harrison, just died before the election. how did that effect the election? >> he was never terribly interested in campaigning. it does put a little bit of an impact. it impacted him negatively. he had no gusto. harrison suffered major defeats during his presidency. the economy was going into a tank. there was not anything that he could do about it. the republican party was splintering. his secretary of state resigned right before the end of the presidency. he wanted to see if he could get one last bite at the nomination apple. the democrats are finding a better recipe to call lasts. in the 1892 election, it was the backdrop. the crumbling economy and the crumbling republican party. >> in 1892, frances's prediction comes true. there was economic uncertainty in the country. president cleveland returned to office. soon after was one of the most interesting presidential stories. he is the only president to
community health center in the country has gone resources to hire education and enrollment people. a lot of hospitals are training their own staff. we of train that several thousands that will be part of the network. this is now translated into reaching out in communities where we know there are large numbers of uninsured. being available on the fun in-- on the phone, on thethe web to answer questions and encouraging people to take advantage of the offer to did they have -- of the opportunity they have.for the first time to get health security for themselves and their family. >> [indiscernible] >> this was never appropriated. we certainly have gone back to congress a number of times for outreach and education funding. that budget has not been forthcoming. we're working with the resources we have, but knowing that makes partnerships -- they were always going to be hugely important, but they are all the more important because we're basically launching a new national product, and in the states were the federal government is running the market places, we are responsible for the outreach and
every day and the camp population growing i feel there's no way we will return to syria. >> education is available for all ages in the camp but roughly 80% of children in al zaatre are not in school. many consider the camp unsafe so they limit their children's movement especially the girls to protect them from harassment. this has affected the education of young women in el zaatri camp. children and teenagers have been charged with new responsibility, including tremendous pressure to care for their families. here most male teenagers have to earn a living and contribute to household income. but there aren't enough jobs for everyone in the camp. that's why depression and hopelessness are becoming widespread among young male refugees with some becoming becoming increasingly aggressive in their behavior. so providing educational training for youth to make their time more useful and skills that they can take back to syria. malik is 18, from the syrian province of dalaha. he says this welding class makes his life here more meaningful. and this is a class for teaching young female refugees h
over the country? >> it really is happening all ore ever the country, we see parents educating themselves, the fallacious argument of the son looking like the father. people are looking into really what are the benefits, like i said, no international medical organization recommends it. if you look at stanford medical school's web page and they have a seven page list of bad side effects from circumcision, really, would you put your child under the duress and pain and mutilation of undergoing a circumcision, with a possibility of them dying, having infections? these are routine complications, i was just reading today, there are a -- there are about 300 pediatric urologists in the united states, most of them take all of their time repairing mild to moderate circumcisions, gone wrong. degloving removing all of the skin on the penis, this is not considered a bad effect by many people. the foreskin is there for a reason. there is no dotted line on a penis for a doctor to cut. if someone is 18 years old and wants to have a circumcision for whatever reason and they know the risks and t
education more affordable. in a speech that you can watch live here at c-span2, it's set for 11:05 this morning, he will unveil a number of measures including tuition costs, graduation rates and the average earning of graduates. for more on the president's bus tour, we spoke with a "usa today" reporter. >> host: mr. jackson, could you kind of highlight some to have message that the president will bring, especially a new take on how colleges should be ranked and how that ties to financial aid. >> guest: exactly, yes. this is the latest in a series of speeches he's been giving on the middle class, and this week's topic, as you mentioned, is college affordability. and he's going to outline a revamped plan for how to reduce those costs. first of all, it involves what he calls payment for performance. as you mentioned, he's going to the propose that colleges be ranked in terms of how they're holding down costs, holding down tuition and delivering more effective education for the better dollar. and these rankings will be tied to federal aid. the higher the school is ranked on the savi
into the air force when i began my college education, and were i begin to get a real education because i left this country. i had to go over to england in order to have my experience here with racism and my experience as a black man be corroborated. so i learned how to develop a critical analysis of this country by being over in england. i had mentors, multiple mentors. i mean, i've mentors industries and i've mentors also in the classroom, a wide range of mentors. this notion that you have only one mentor, that's crazy. i had multiple mentors. i have drug dealers were mentors. i had professors who were mentors, a wide range of mentors. and i took from each one they needed. in fact, one of those mentors told me that i had what it takes to get a ph.d. and so that's how it ended up going to graduate school. [applause] >> granted, i didn't go to graduate school in harlem. i went to graduate school in wyoming. [laughter] and that's the story, that's another story. i talk about that story. >> you said that you had an abundance of adolescent cockiness that created risk blindness. i think a lot of p
it was in 1963 in inflation-adjusted terms. although minimum-wage workers are better educated, they are we are, as a society much wealthier than we were in 1963, but the fact of the matter is, we have allowed the real value of the minimum wage to the road, and that means that many workers, low wage workers, cannot earn enough to lift your families out of poverty. we have also seen a decline of our manufacturing base, significant numbers of male workers have lost good jobs, and we have seen their wages declined. so perhaps more than half of male workers today are earning less than they would have earned 35 years ago. back to'm going to come minimum-wage versus living wage in just a second. these are my words, not yours. i do want your response to this. how is it that 50 years later, we cannot even seem to get a real conversation -- we cannot even get traction in washington talking about poverty. president barack obama and the members of congress, both the left and the right -- everybody has to it knowledge that they spend so much more time in washington talking about the middle class, they are
with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is unacceptable behavior, and i am often fearful when we try to develop a black letter law if you have all these factors and bullying and you fell outside and that works okay in the courtroom. right? clea understanding of the laws to understand whether we have a criminal violation or not, but i am fearful we maybe overly legalistic and the way we deal with on a daily basis and we need to approach this by a global perspective respecting people and understanding we have the same rights and obligations and starting with the adults and i go back to the adults because the adults really have to tow the line here. they really have to walk the talk. i cannot tell you how often i of involved in large mentoring efforts and now in two different places, in l.a. and arizona. i cannot tell you how often the teachers are the ones that set the tone whether we have a respectable environment or and not part of that is edu
in terms of standards and criteria are supposed to substantiate the quality of education. and what accjc has done is distort the meaning of accreditation to make city college fulfill these criteria that don't really talk about the quality of education. let me move on real fast. secondly, punishment needs to fit the crime. okay. i work for muni. you have unreliable schedules. they haven't been fulfilling for 10 years, for over 10 years. shut it down, okay. [laughter] >>> you know the idea. okay. and just a few comments that i hope you guys can pass on. these were collected for accjc for the third -- could i just read one of them, the best one? >> just one. >>> okay, just one. this is from my next door neighbor. there are world class instructors teaching at city college, graduating high school students deserve their expertise. the problem ccsf faces in regard to the budget need to be addressed -- needs to be addressed in other ways, not by compromising its accreditation. and she was a student at city college and she's a high school teacher. and i got these comments to give to accjc and the
there was not enough post secondary education among the staff. our staff has been doing this work for more than 20 years. any other agency, even the city itself recognizes education versus work experience, and we take offense to this. we speak openly to our children. they know what the comments were and it's just sad that you sent message that was sent that the people they consider their family don't matter. >> thank you. next speaker please. >> hi. my name is loretta davis and i work for the reason -- renaissance center and started with calworks program and ended in 2012. i have been there since then as of january 2 this year. i'm a volunteer. i have been volunteering ever since my job ended because i still have clients and they need me. i refuse to leave them just no where, nobody to help them out.

, d.c. to share my thoughts on what i think we need to focus on in public education in america. >> thank you. thank you, joe. >> i am a product of forced busing for racial equality. i take you back to the '70s, where diversity was a word that was foreign to america, but it was the future. i take you to birmingham, alabama, last night, where i did a radio town hall and i can tell you what's happening in america right now. the dream can only be realized if we pay attention to what's going on in our own backyard. when we start picking and choosing neighborhoods, who's going to get the resources and who's not going to get the resources, we will lose this country, we will lose the vision of diversity, we will lose the opportunity of equality to move all people forward. you need to pay attention to what's happening in your backyard to make sure that your school and those young kids get the resources they need to have an opportunity in america that will help them grow. being a product of the middle class, i was the one that was afforded the opportunities. and if we start picking and c
of a college education. we're going have to do things differently. >> you don't often agree with this president. sometimes you do. mostly you don't. do you agree with him on college affordability? >> i'm not sure -- i certainly agree that college costs way, way, too much, christine. i have two kids in college so it is killing me financially. i think the solutions is not to keep tloeg more and more federal dollars at the universities. i think the universities is the biggest scam going in america. there's no reason a college education should cost 30, 40, $50,000 a year. i think there's good news. i think you're going to see more and more people moving towards online education, cutting these costs of colleges because, look, it circles back to what you were talking about. if people's salaries and wages are falling, how in the world can they send -- afford to send kids to school when it's taking up more than half of their income? >> you know, the one thing is you -- $26,000 in student debt, you can afford to pay that back if there's a job on the other end. if we are part-time america, that investmen

in america, a good job with good wages, a good education, a home of your own, affordable health care, secure retirements, even if you're not rich, more ladders of opportunity for everybody, that's what we should be fighting for. and one of the most important things we can do to restore that sense of upward mobility, the ability to achieve the american dream, the idea that if you can make it if you try, one of the most important things we can do is make sure every child is getting a good education. and the students who are studying here, they understand that. that's why they've made sacrifices. that's why their family are making sacrifices. you understand that if the face of global competition, when the germans and the chinese and the indians are all putting more money into education and putting more money into research and -- that we can't just stand pat. we can't stand by and do nothing. you understand that a great education's more important than ever. and you don't have to take my word for it. look, the data is clear. if you get some kind you have higher education, whether its a two-year d
